Miley vs. Symphony

Last night (Sept. 29) was the Miley Cyrus concert at the EnergySolutions Arena. It was also the night the Utah Symphony performed Salute to Youth, which featured a handful of talented young musicians who performed with the symphony.

While I was at the Cyrus show, I couldn’t help but hear things that I’m certain would never be uttered at a symphony show. Here are just a few of the things I heard:

1. “Shake it! Shake it! Shake it!”
2. “Which T-shirt do you want?”
3. “They’re selling cotton candy!”
4. “Miley! Miley! Miley!”
5. “Give me that popcorn before you spill it all over yourself, or so help me I’ll…”
6. “Scream like you mean it!”
7. “I can’t see! Sit down!”
8. “Stay put! I don’t want to have to look for you.”
9, “These seats suck!”
10. “Mom! He spilled his nachos all over me!”
